Meridia For Weight Loss
Meridia® (sibutramine hydrochloride monohydrate) is a prescription medication used for weight loss. Meridia is approved for use in adults (age 16 and older) and is intended to be used in combination with a low-calorie diet.
The product works by helping you to feel full more quickly. It acts in the brain, where it increases the levels of certain brain chemicals (including serotonin, norepinephrine, and dopamine) in specific areas of the brain. Meridia can also help people who have already lost weight to keep the weight off.
Although most people tolerate Meridia well, it is not suitable for everyone. Make sure your healthcare provider is aware of any other medications you are taking, as well as any other medical conditions you may have.
Meridia comes in capsule form and is typically taken once a day. This drug comes in three strengths -- 5 mg, 10 mg, and 15 mg capsules. For the medicine to work properly, it must be taken as prescribed.
